I am the owner of ASRock J4205-ITX - 16GB or RAM + 128GB SSD + 2x 3TB. I was unsuccessful with Jun's v1.02b and DS916. I boot successfully, however load of pat fails with error 13.
So I am trying to build Xpenology for DSM918+ (Apollo lake). I found kref's scripts, downloaded kernel & toolchain published by Synology on Sourceforge, I overcame some obstacles.
However generated image doesn't work for me. I tried to redirect console to tty0 by a kernel parameter - no success. I cannot even make kernel to be verbose on the serial port.
I wonder what kind of mods are needed for kernel. I noticed a lot of mentions of modprobe and I can see there are synobios binaries in sancome's repo. I guess mod is needed for passing SN & macs and maybe USB vid pid, but I don't understand what is a trick with sid pid. Does it somehow hide USB drive for Synology?
Are there somewhere mod patches for old linux, so I could be inspired for linux 4.4.x?
